Inspiration

Walking 20 minutes to campus only to find all the desks are taken by empty backpacks.

What it does

Shows desk availability and will mark desk to be cleared after 15 minutes of inactivity

How I built it

Used Django for the back end and CSS, JavaScript and HTML to spice it up

Challenges I ran into

Trying to headlessly set up a raspberry pi and SSH onto a network with 80,000 different IP addresses

Accomplishments that I'm proud of

Making a web app from scratch with zero previous experience

What I learned

How to apply my python knowledge and foundations of web development

What's next for Desk4U

Occupancy sensor integration
